Flatface G7.1 Wheels!

Mike Schneider posted on FFI that the new G7.1 A wheels are in stock! I love the new thinner shape of the wheels, so get them while you can!

"FlatFace introduces the G7.1 wheel. The inside features the same dual sheilded custom lubricated highest quality ball bearings as always, and the wheel itself will feature all the regular spaceproof flatface wheel materials you've known and loved. The difference is the shape. After looking at a skate wheel closely, I've figured out how the shape of some skate wheels is so different than G6/G7s. Of course, skate wheels come in different sizes. You can think of G6/G7 as slightly wider skate wheels, and these new 7.1s as a thinner skate wheel. But, not only is the wheel thinner, the radius has also changed. Made with a 100% custom carbide tool, these wheels are made with rounded edges exactly like a skate wheel, in an advanced way that's not easily acheived. After a few weeks of prototypes and tests, I'm proud to announce the new series of wheels. And of course, G6 and G7 wheels will still be made, but for those who are looking to try out something new, try some G7.1s.

Right now I have them only in A's (turquoise) but I'll get more in different colors to follow. As the original material of the first G6 wheels, the A material is extremely resistant to wear and internally lubricated, for a good clean feeling, no matta wot. And a nice color to make your setup look nice and professional.

Sorry for bad pics. Here's 2 pictures taken by Doug where you can see the shape and color more accurately.


They are in stock now on www.flatfacefingerboards.com !

Just because the fingerboarding championships are held where alot of the american guys can't get to it this kid gets props for a rip off of a yellowood deck? How about bringing the championship over to the united states and see if Assmuths name still means anything?

Elias deserves that title 100%. Fast Fingers is the largest and one of the oldest fingerboard competitions. BTW, Elias went to the Rendezvous and placed first. So I think his name does mean something.

Furthermore, it's hilarious that you think Berlinwood is ripping off of Yellowood. The shapes aren't similar at all, so where do you get that statement from?
